  •  I hear you on the sewing! (6+ / 0-)

    Perhaps you could talk to the school and let them know that it is important that you be socially responsible in sourcing your kid's clothes, and let Children's Place know that you abhor their part in perpetuating misery in their supply chain. Then head over to... Etsy? Hmm. The other issue with all of this is that many of our fabrics and dies are made abroad as well. We've basically allowed the Republicans to eliminate the possibility of being socially responsible. Egads. Bust out that sewing machine!

    •  i've already written tcp (5+ / 0-)

      said 2 things- what are they doing for the families of the dead and for the injured and their families?

      also asked if they'd start a made in the usa line. even if it's a limited portion of their selection, and even if it were expensive, i'd buy it.

      I really have been a faithful customer- not just for my own kids, but for their little friends' birthday presents, too. and they're great for premie sizes. when my friend's grandson was born I went in to buy a few premie oufits and I left w/ a TON for the little guy. couldn't stop myself.

      not too long ago we brought my daughter's best friend to pick out her own birthday presents. they were so cute on their little shopping spree.

      if they don't handle this right they will be losing me as a lifelong customer. I know my kids will outgrow the store, but i'm always buying for baby showers.

      fine- i'll get a sewing machine. having traumatic flashbacks to that sundress I made in home ec. had to wear it to school. my kids are going to hate me.
